This is 50

Happy birthday to me.
It was pretty, pretty good day.
First, I need to thank each and every one of you for sharing this journey with me.
I am forever grateful that I have a platform like this to interact with all of you and I look forward to continuing our blogging adventures. 
How was turning 50?
Well, I am glad you asked.
I took the day off from work.
I then had cinnamon rolls for breakfast.
I got awesome gifts from my family.
I talked to one of my best buddies from college, who shares the same birthday as me.
I heard from a lot of family and friends.
And then we went here:






The first day of Chapter 5.0 was great and it wasn't a bad way to start a new decade. 


hope to do better tomorrow. 
Stay safe, take care, and thanks for being there.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

Belated birthday wishes, Mr. S. - and did you get the spaghetti I sent you through the USB port? It took about four hours to feed enough strands through for a good-sized potful, and I'm afraid it's not cooked either. And there's no sauce. Wait, that sounds like a horrible birthday present. Ah, too late :D

Your birthday outing looks like an excellent day. I'm jealous your weather allowed you all to swim!

A Very Happy Birthday to you! It looks like it was a wonderful day!

It looks as if I was too early so I will say it again. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Heehee I'm probably too late now. I wish our time differences would level out.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BELATED OR OTHERWISE.

I glad you had a good birthday. Happy 5-0. I can't think of a better way than to spend time soaking in a hot springs and Idaho is blessed with so many.

Happy Birthday!! Looks like y'all had a great day!

It seems Mrs. Frizzle wasn't as enamored of hot springs as you and the children.

Happy Birthday!! I'm glad you got out. If you were out doing that in the UK the police would be moving you on and fining you £30. :D We are only allowed outside to do one form of exercise a day and it has to be close to your house. We aren't allowed to travel in the car. It's been like that for 5 weeks, and it looks likely to continue!
Happy Birthday, Mr. Shife!
It looks like you had a celebration with the most important ingredients.
Chapter 5.0 looks quite promising!

XOXO

I'm so Glad the Milestone Birthday went so well and you're looking so Happy during the Celebration! Also, that you were able to find a Safe place to Celebrate in the Great Outdoors that was still open to the Public, so that it was Memorable in only the best of ways!
